A deck is a flat surface that can carry the weight that resembles a floor, but is basically built outdoors, lifted off the ground, and connected to a building. Terraces are extended living areas of the house and consist of timber, composite material, aluminum and steel, etc. In urban areas, terraces refers to structures that were built on existing building roofs. With this trend, outdoor life is also growing.
It is not recommended to create a canopy over an existing deck until the deck is able to carry a future canopy. To avoid the changes to the original deck, the roof can also be designed independently of the deck. Several products are used to create the top surface of the roof assembly:
- Steel deck b (this is usually a galvanized or painted steel plate).
- Wooden deck (this is generally a plywood and grooved casing installed over the same type of wooden frame).
- Concrete deck (these decks are used when high strength is required).
- Cast gypsum deck (this was cheap and lightweight.) In this steel, mash is incorporated into the gypsum for strength reasons.
- Tectum deck
In terms of bad roof constructions, the triangular shaped pitched roof is most likely to be encountered, a common design that suits any type of facade. Other roof structures include the hipped roof, a custom-made style in which the sides of the roof are all sloped down to meet the walls of the building. Another commonly used style is the age-old scale style, which can never go awry. This has a single roof construction, which is connected to the building walls and serves as a support pillar at the ends.
